Report on the workshop for the participatory evaluation of earthquake risk and resilience in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Source(s):  Global Earthquake Model Foundation (GEM)

This report describes efforts to assess earthquake risk, estimated losses and resilience in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia using the Resilience Performance Scorecard (RPS). 

After the introduction, Sub-section 1.2 presents the study area and its exposure to earthquake events. Section 2 provides the methodology used for the analysis of resilience. Section 3 delineates the results obtained for each question using the scorecard approach, Section 4 presents an analysis of the results by the dimensional driver of resilience, and Section 5 presents activities and projects that could be of interest to reduce risk and improve the earthquake resilience of Addis Ababa.

The RPS is a multi-level and multi-scale self-evaluation tool that empowers stakeholders to assess earthquake resilience parameters based primarily on qualitative information. Here, an interactive voting system was used in a workshop setting to identify priorities where activities may be pertinent for earthquake risk reduction or where existing initiatives may be improved to increase earthquake resilience in different sectors of society. Six dimensions of earthquake resilience are encompassed to address key areas that mainstream risk reduction, namely: planning and decision-making processes, social capacity, awareness and advocacy, legal and institutional arrangements, planning and regulation, critical infrastructure and services, and emergency preparedness and response.
